Just off 31st Street and Avenue H, you'll find the Temple Animal Shelter where Walter Hetzel serves as Director of Animal Services. The side street which is where the Animal Shelter located is called "Mama Dog Circle." How did the street get its name? And who was "Mama Dog?" Walter explains below.

You can be a hero just like Mama Dog was by giving a loving home to a pound puppy of your choice. Browse Temple Animal Services' newly-redesigned website or head on over and pick up your pup.
